Six Democratic congressmen presented 5 articles of impeachment against President Trump on Wednesday, adding to the growing list of congressmen calling for his removal.

Why it matters: With 40% of Americans supporting impeachment, according to an August poll by the Public Religion Research Institute, there will likely more efforts to impeach the president. Impeachment requires a majority of House members, and no Republicans have publicly supported efforts for impeachment.

The list of Democrats on impeachment
  1. Al Green (Texas) first called for impeachment of Donald Trump in May on the House floor. He also unveiled articles of impeachment last month and attempted to rush a vote, which never happened, and is currently involved in the latest articles of impeachment offered by a group of six Democratic House members. In his articles from last month, Green claimed that the President "is fueling an alt-right hate machine" that's "causing immediate injury to American society.
  2. Brad Sherman (Calif.) unveiled an article of impeachment in July, which claimed that Trump had committed an obstruction of justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey during the FBI's investigation into Russian-Trump campaign collusion.
  3. Maxine Waters (Calif.) just last week led a crowd in "impeach him" chants, and has called for Trump's impeachment several times since he took office.
  4. Steve Cohen (Tenn.) is among the House members who presented the articles of impeachment on November 15. "We believe that President Trump has violated the Constitution, and we've introduced five articles of impeachment," Cohen said.
  5. Luis Gutierrez (IL) is among the House members who presented the articles of impeachment on November 15. Gutierrez posted a photo of the resolution on Twitter.
  6. Adriano Espaillat (NY)is among the House members who presented the articles of impeachment on November 15.
  7. Marcia Fudge (OH) is among the House members who presented the articles of impeachment on November 15.
  8. John Yarmuth (KY) is among the House members who presented the articles of impeachment on November 15.
  9. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) said earlier in November that she believes Trump has committed "significant constitutional impeachable violations" and suggested that movements toward impeachment should be made in the House.

Where Republicans stand: While Republicans haven't publicly supported impeachment efforts, two have at least suggested that Trump could be impeached.

  1. Justin Amash (R-MI) suggested in May that Trump might be impeached if the reports about his pressuring James Comey to "let Flynn go" were true.
  2. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) compared Trump's pressuring of Comey in the Flynn investigation to Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton's obstruction of justice cases on CNN in May.

China's crypto throwdown

China's latest move to ban cryptocurrency shows how tough it will be for the technology to deliver on its backers' vision of disruptive, decentralized change.

The big picture: Control of the currency is a foundation of sovereignty, and governments don't plan on losing that control even as money inevitably turns digital.

D.C. homicides fueled by rundown properties

Illustration: Sarah Grillo/Axios

Angela Washington was the last line of defense for residents at the Oak Hill Apartments in Southeast besieged by gun violence. Then, on the evening of Sept. 21, the 41-year-old special police officer was shot to death.

Why it matters: The District’s spike in gun violence is being linked partly to rundown properties that city officials and residents say have become magnets for criminal activity.

Biden's reengineer-America moment

The Senate's bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and President Biden's $3.5 trillion spending package could live or die this week — and take Democrats' fortunes with them. But all the minute-by-minute political drama obscures how much America could change if even a fraction of it passes.

The big picture: Anything short of total failure could have a transformative impact on day-to-day life — from how we move around to our access to the internet, paid family leave and child care, health care and college.
